Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Looking to buy a new vacuum

\015 We have had a Riccar vacuum for 14 years but it is time replace it. We have four cats and lots of stairs and carpeting. I have heard good things about the Dyson purple but our vacuum guy says that they do not hold up. Can anyone recommend a good vacuum for our needs?\015

Answers :

We had a Sebo X1 Automatic for 13 years, similar to Riccar but more simplistic, large bags and brilliant for pets (clearing up after 2 rottweilers, 1 westie and a cat). Shop around for Sebo if you are after an upright vacuum - though it uses bags it is far healthier and Sebo have GHI and endless awards for their reliability. Currently Im running a Sebo Felix as a second upright vac in the home , has a much smaller dirt capacity but over the two, I'd say the X range is the best. In the U.S/Canada Sebo are available as are the commercial version which is just as good known as Windsor-Sebo.
The eureka boss smart vac is the 2nd best vacuum on the market for the money..look it up on consumer reports that way you will get a real idea on maybe what to buy.everyone has there own preference.i collect them for a hobby and make them like new again.

Bissell 37604 Bagless Upright Vacuum. Hose keeps clogging every time I vacuum. Is there a way to prevent this? I am ready to buy a new vacuum, but it does do a great job picking up hair...until it clogs. It clogs at top of hose. Could the hose be kinked? It does not look like it.

Unbeknownst to me, someone took the bag out of my Kenmore Progressive vacuum and failed to replace it. I have been vacuuming without a bag for months, and today the vacuum stopped sucking. When I opened up the front to replace the bag, tons of dirt and dust came pouring out. I thoroughly cleaned the vacuum, put in a new bag, but still no sucking power. Just dust coming from the rear vents where one of the filters is. Is the vacuum ruined, or is it a simple solution of buying a new filter?

I have a Simplicity S24 canister vacuum. It's about 3 yrs. old. In the past year I have had it in the shop 4 times because when using the rug piece, the piece turns on & off, on & off. The actual vacuum doesn't... just the rug piece. I recently spent $65 on a new part, after spending countless dollars the other 3 times it was in the shop for this problem. I'm ready to buy another name vacuum altogether as I feel this vacuum is not worth the money that was spent on it. I'm very frustrated.

My vacuum just stopped working, so I don't know what the problem is. I used it in the kitchen to vacuum the hard wood floor. I turned it off, and a few minutes later, turned it back on to finish vaccuuming the kitchen floor. It just would not turn on. I had not unplugged it or did anything to it. I then tried to see if it would work in another plug, and no luck. I'm trying to figure out if it can be fixed or if I need to look for a new vacuum.

I have a Eureka 4800 series the Boss upright with a bag and Hepa filter. I love it! I was just vacuuming with the hose part and all was well and then suddenly the lower brush came on and a "burning" smell followed. Thought it was the belt so my husband was going to put on the new belt which I had on hand! When he turned it over, the "bar" that holds the belt looks as though it "shot through" the plastic side of the housing on the vacuum. There is melted plastic on the outside of the vacuum and o

I have two old identical 5842's that I use in the garage and around the house. The belt broke on one so I bought a bag of 2 genuine Eurika "U" belts, which is the correct belt for this vacuum. They were obviously smaller than the original belt because they were not stretched out. When I put the new belt on it lasted about 20 minutes and then came off. I put it back on and ran the vacuum with the cover off to see what was wrong. Everything looked fine except the belt rides to the outside edge of
